The Foundation for Relief & Reconciliation in the Middle East

A word about the (missed) offering for Iraq last week: 

Some of you may have noticed that we did not end up taking the collection for the Foundation for Relief and Reconciliation in the Middle East, to help with the crisis in Iraq. This is because we learned that according to CRA rules, the church cannot receive funds on behalf of a foreign charity.We will clarify this on Sunday, but in the meantime, we do encourage you to give directly at We apologize for any confusion this has caused.
